Query tab

Query tab

The Query tab is used for agents (and smart adornments) only.

The main input box is used for adding or editing a query ($AgentQuery). Pressing the Return key (↩) commits any changes made and runs (or updates) the query. The code box has auto-completion for action code and attribute names (based on using a $-prefix). The code box supports syntax colouring.

The number of items currently matching the query, i.e. the child count of the agent is show at top right.

Priority. This pop-up menu controls whether the agent is 'on' or not. Sets $AgentPriority. See more on controlling agent priority.

Cleanup. This pop-up menu sets the agent's cleanup action ($CleanupAction).

Smart adornments use neither a Priority or Cleanup actions so both these pop-ups are greyed out if a smart adornment is selected.

Note that an agent's query, action and priority can also be set from the agent tab of the Get Info pop-over.
